The show soon extended to Sundays exclusively for celebrities and their families. The Sunday show, entitiled Family Feud: Celebrity Edition, premiered on November 30, 2008.



Continuing GMA-7's tradition of bringing non-stop fun and surprises to its televiewers; Family Feud, the longest-running and most popular game show worldwide, is about to invade primetime TV as the network opens its fourth quarter season.

Family Feud, a daily half-hour game show, will be hosted by the epitome of every woman’s description of "tall, dark and handsome" -- none other than all-time favorite versatile movie actor, the original Adonis of Philippine showbiz, Richard Gomez.

Mondays to Fridays, Family Feud will have two participating families of four going head-to-head as they try to determine the seven top answers based on what the "survey said" in polls conducted with 100 people. Celebrity families will be featured and non-celebrity families will try to outsmart each other every Weeknights.

How to Play

The game begins with the captains of both teams facing off at the lock-out desk near the game master to see which family will gain control of the particular question. An answer is considered correct if it is one of the concealed answers on the game board. If the captain’s answer earns the higher points, his/her family gets the chance to play first every round throughout the entire game. Three strikes and the family gives up control of the board, and the competing family gets a chance to steal the bank by naming just one answer that’s not yet revealed on the board. Richard then goes to the podium of the entire family as they confer before giving their final answer. The first answer is always the final answer.

The same mechanics apply for the succeeding rounds, with the exception of doubled points for Round 3 and tripled points for Round 4. The family with 300 points or more, moves on to the Fast Money round where they may win the jackpot prize of as much as P150,000.

In Fast Money, two representatives of the winning family must separately try to name the most popular answers to five survey questions in 20 and 25 seconds, respectively. If the total combined score of their answers reach at least 200 points, they win the jackpot. If not, they get a consolation of P50,000 and return the next day as the defending champions, to have another chance at the jackpot which will have increased to P250,000.

The defending family has a maximum of four lucky tries at the jackpot, after which they yield the crown to a new champion.

Family Feud is all about points, winning streaks, and top answers. Which family will emerge as the winner at the end of the game to take home the jackpot? Who will pass, play, steal or strike? Well, the family that plays together -- definitely wins together!
